Package atril_1.16.1-1 FTBFS on mipsel with following error:

> dpkg-deb: building package 'libatrildocument3-dbgsym' in '../libatrildocument3-dbgsym_1.16.1-1_mipsel.deb'.
> dpkg-deb (subprocess): compressing tar member: lzma error: Cannot allocate memory
> dpkg-deb: error: subprocess <compress> from tar -cf returned error exit status 2
> dh_builddeb: dpkg-deb -Zxz -z9 --build debian/.debhelper/libatrilview3/dbgsym-root .. returned exit code 2

Full build log:

Problem occurs because -z9 uses a lot of memory during compression.

A similar problem had been detected in the package geneweb and it was solved by 
removing "dh_builddeb -- -Zxz -z9" from debian/rules file.
In this way deafult (xz) compression is used.

I have created and attached a patch that resolves this problem.
With this patch package builds successfully.
